        This is supposedly "a startlingly accurate preview of what would eventually become the 'Star Wars' prequels." Yeah, might want to double-check the meaning of "accurate" there, HuffPo. This looks like the story that was hinted at for years, until 1999 turned it all upside down.

        Reading that.... I can't help but imagine the three of them passing around a doobie.

        I am have a strong feeling that Funyuns were also involved.

        Anyone read Animal Farm? Napoleon and Squealer seemed to find "documents" that proved all kinds of things true. Amazing.
        But I am looking forward to Rinzler's next SW book.
